How to apply thermal paste
General information

Easy to Apply
With an ideal consistency, the MX-2 is very easy to use, even for beginners. The video shows the possibilities for its application and the most effective way to avoid voids between CPU and cooler.

General information

Excellent Performance
The ARCTIC MX-2 compound is composed of carbon micro-particles which lead to an extremely high thermal conductivity. It guarantees that heat generated from the CPU or GPU is dissipated quickly and efficiently, even suitable for overclocking. Superb in performance, MX-2 ranks among the top thermal compound, thermal paste or thermal grease in the market.

General information

Safe Application
It does not contain any metallic particles so electrical conductivity would not be an issue. Unlike silver and copper compound, it ensures that contact with any electrical pins would not result in damage of any sort.

General information

High Durability
In contrast to metal and silicon thermal compound, the performance of MX-2 does not compromise over time. Once applied, you do not need to apply it a second time as it will last over 8 years.

General information

Value for Money
A high performance thermal compound perfect for system builders, there's no surprise that the MX-2 exceeds your expectations for its low price tag.

Still good after 9 years on CPU 6/16/2020 12:53:34 PM

Pros: I used this on my Core i7 2600K almost 9 years ago in 2011 and my CPU temps are still pretty good with a mild overclock. I applied it with the "2 grains of rice" measurement. Max temp is 60 degrees C when gaming currently. My mentality is, if it isn't broken then don't fix it. This stuff really does seem to last a long time.

Cons: N/A

Overall Review: Excellent thermal compound for the price. The new (?) MX-4 compound might be even better?

It is what it is 2/20/2020 2:33:13 PM

Pros: -It's an entry level budget paste.
-You cant really go wrong with it.
-The syringe came in a resealable package
-Came 26h after ordering

Cons: -Nothing really

Overall Review: It shipped super fast and arrived in 26 hours or so. The performance is exactly what you would expect for entry level thermal paste but I would lean towards it because if its electrically non-conductive nature.

Pros: +Temps are lower by approx 10-20°C.
+Easy to apply
+The value is amazing

Cons: Haven't experienced any cons.

Overall Review: This product is absolutely amazing. I used to get temps of up to 176°F sometimes, now it's gone down to a normal of 140-151°F. I can't believe a paste this good is so affordable. Definitely my new GO-TO paste for anything i build from now on.
